uh oh. smiley - rofl Cynthia! help me! help me! smiley - rofl.

erm, right, yes, this piece mentions William Blake, and I just got into a big steam in the Neil Diamond competition slot, about Blake and Neil Diamond and the music press and art and everything, because I like Longfellow Serenade (Diamond song)and the poetry of Longfellow, and erm right and ...

and then there are competitions and showcasing and ways of looking at art and help! this isn't meant to be an an intellectual piece about William Blake, and its not written as an attempt at great literature, haha,in fact it might sound a bit naive and the critics would hate it.

I just wrote it from the heart because I like writing, but yikes now I am a bit scared and do I feel safe with this piece being here?, and are competitions fun?, or will it all get weird like the music press, and Cynthia! Cynthia! where are you when I need you. smiley - rofl.

Seriously though, its OK really, I think its me that has strayed into the wrong pasture, so I will go home now, smiley - roflsmiley - sheep because I come from a sort of like different arts context, and I just realised, yes! yes! eureka smiley - eureka, like a community where there were all like people having nervous breakdowns and getting over addictions, and there was art therapy and heheh, right, and it didn't matter how good or bad the result was, it was just the doing of it, those vital inky scratches, the difference between life and death, learning to express when the art world and the world at large has suggested that you are rubbish, and I think I did once compare a biro to a syringe, suggested to a friend that she try writing instead of y'know, shooting up, and well, she saw the difference.

Hmm. I think I just realised my vocation. smiley - rofl. Although I am retired, so I don't have to go train as an art therapist.

Yes! Yes! How inconsistent is this particular rant? Very. haha.

I go. heheh. Room for us all, I know there is. yes! yes! lovely world. smiley - rofl. Splendid. wink wink.


Cynthia! help! help!

Wink, wink, back atcha.

That is what I keep saying. Challenges, not competition.

Growth, not critique.

Process, not product.
